Perhaps you're wondering...
Will I have enough time?
The classes are designed to fit into the pockets of time you are able to set aside for your art. New classes are released on a weekly schedule to encourage you to paint regularly but there's absolutely no pressure to complete them in a certain timeframe. If you have a busy month and don't get much time to paint that's no problem at all. You can pause and revisit your classes whenever you want.
If you are able to do so, I would recommend setting aside an hour or two of dedicated 'painting time' each week. This will help you to develop your skills consistently and get the most out of your membership. You'll definitely feel the mindfulness benefits of taking some time out each week to relax and enjoy creating.
What materials will I need?
Acrylics are affordable, making them ideal for beginners to painting. They are water based and quick drying so they can be easily set up at home. You can start with just some basic supplies (see my materials list here) and whilst I may sometimes recommend extra materials for certain techniques you can add these to your collection as and when it suits you.
What are the technical requirements?
The membership is operated entirely online which means you simply need a good internet connection to watch the videos. The website will work on most computers, laptops, tablets and mobile phones. For the best experience you should use an updated version of either the Google Chrome, Firefox or Safari web browser.
When are new classes released?
New Monthly Themes will be announced on the first Monday of the month. New classes for that theme will be released weekly on Mondays. You will receive an email when new classes are available. If you join part way through a month you'll be able to access all the classes that have been released so far.
New classes and articles will also be added to the Knowledge Library throughout your membership (whenever I think of something that will be helpful to you!)
How will I access the classes?
When you sign up you'll be sent login information for this website and you'll find all of your classes when you're logged in.
Can I download classes to watch offline?
No, you must be connected to the Internet to view your class content. However, some resources such as images and PDF documents will available to download and keep.
How can I get help if I have a question or need some feedback?
You'll be able to use the comments section on your classes to get in touch with me. I check the comments several times a week (Mondays, Thursdays and Saturdays) and will get back to you as soon as possible.
What if I need to cancel my membership?
I hope that you will want to stay a member of The Peaceful Painter and you can always get in touch with me if there is anything I can do to help. However, if you find that the membership is not for you, it's easy to cancel at anytime. You can manage your subscription yourself and if you cancel you will be able to access your membership until the end of your current month and then you will lose access and no further payments will be charged.
Any other questions?
